Did You Ever See a PINK Mummy?

No? Well check this out! Allison wanted to be a PINK Mummy this year for Halloween. Leave it to my daughter to be original! To be honest with you, it came out better than I thought it would but how could it go wrong with such a little cutie in it! :)

I wasn't sure we were even going to make it to go Trick or Treating because Allison stayed home sick from school on Monday and Tuesday. Monday she had a low grade fever and threw up in morning. She ate a tiny bit of homemade chicken noodle soup, some toast and drank lots of water. She never made it off the couch at all on Monday. On Tuesday, besides still having her cold, she seemed much better. She played all day and was her sweet self. She even had her appetite back. It was a hard decision to know what to do. Do I take her or do I keep her indoors? After talking to my best friend, Susan, on the phone and discussing my dilemma, I decided to take her for a little. We go back to where I grew up and go with my best friend, her sister and her daughter, Maria. Here they are! Don't they look adorable? It was raining so we only went to about a dozen houses and then we went back to my parents' house to dry off and pick up their goodies for Allison. Allison begged for candy so I permitted her to pick one. She thought about it for a while and decided on the Whoppers because "I love them just like my Dad!" We then left for our hour drive home. She and I were hungry so we did McDonald's drive-thru. I know! I know! WHAT was I thinking? After 1 chicken nugget and about 5 fries she said she didn't feel well and passed the food back to me. Earlier in the evening on our way over she was bragging that she hadn't thrown up since yesterday. I teased her and told her that if she feels like she has to throw up to use her Halloween bucket and she said "EWW." Well, thank you Lord for that conversation because she ended up grabbing it and getting sick while I was driving. She is such a trooper and handled it all on her own because I couldn't pull over immediately. After a couple of minutes I was able to pull over but by that time it was all over and she ended up sleeping the rest of the way home. The lesson learned here is that even though your child seems perfectly well after previously being sick, don't give her chocolate and greasy chicken and fries! UGH!!

Have Fun!
